Doctors update! (week 24)

So, my doctors appointment on Wednesday went as good as it could I guess. He looked over my ultra sound and my placenta has not moved at that means c-section and off work at 28 weeks. Because it has not moved, there is a risk of premature labour as well as other complications. So, 4 more weeks of work...crazy! Also, I found out that I have a stomach ulcer.....that is what all the pain is in my upper belly...not acid reflux but a stomach ulcer. It does not hurt the babies at all but it sure does hurt me lol! My doctor gave me medication to help deal with the pain and it has been working so far so lets keep our fingers crossed!

We also heard the babies heart beats always makes me feel good to hear them both beating so strong! Not that there is any doubt with all the kicking they both do! 

I have also been told that I will be getting ultra sounds every two weeks. Just to make sure the babies are ok...I am ok with that! I love to see our itty bitty babies!

Today, Daddy D and I are off to Edmonton for a huge "Twin Sale". Basically, tons of twin and multiple moms get together to sell their baby stuff! We are excited!! We will let you know how it goes!


P.S. the babies are 8 1/2 inches long right now...the size of an envelope! That is why I am holding up two envelopes to my belly...that is the position the babies are in as well!

  1. Certainly sounds like your doctor is taking good care of you. Too bad about the ulcer but if medication helps that's good. Seems funny that the boys are as big as an envelope! Hope you have fun at the sale.
    Love you lots
